This looks fractionally better that the first division but Dancing Welcome, near the head of the weights, was still beaten in a seller earlier this month. Loulou Vuitton showed promise on the Polytrack earlier this year but how she'll cope with today's going is anybody's guess while Chester Deelyte will probably find at least one too good again, though does have a victory on Turf to her name and has hinted at a revival lately. DELIBERATION is thrown in on his old form and an easier surface will hold no fears for the top weight, who has Richard Hughes' assistance today. Well backed at Brighton last time, he can recoup losses here.
